    Hi
    What does HD call "parade mode" so I can search for it in owners manual.. I'd like to learn how exactly to activate it.

    I had a thought, What,if any, effect does a TFI have on the ETIMS system ?

    As far as activation = nothing at all. My 09 FLHX went into ETIMS a few times on hot/muggy 90+ days. Yes the tuner makes your bike runn cooler (adjust lean), but no need to worry about EITMS not functioning as designed. If she gets hot enough - it'll engage.

    ...unless you shut it off. You do that by rolling your throttle past idle and holding it there for a few seconds with the bike hot, stopped and the engine idling. Watch your cruise control light. It will go from green to yellow (off) or from yellow to green (on). You can hear a slight difference in the sound of the engine exhaust note and you may detect a different smell. The back cylinder cuts out with it engaged and activated. I don't see much difference in the heat put out from the motor though. By then my thighs are sizzling anyway.
